Paths and golf carts
Non-Resident Golf Cart Registration Fee Increase effective January 1, 2022
On November 18, 2021, the Mayor and Council voted to increase the non-resident golf cart registration fee to $250 ($235 + $15 decal fee). The approximate annual cost to maintain the golf cart paths is $3,200,000. That amount was divided by the number of households in Peachtree City to reflect an equitable share of what non-Peachtree City residents should pay compared to what Peachtree City residents currently pay within their ad valorem/property taxes to maintain the path. The increase will only apply to nonresidents and will become effective on January 1, 2022. Peachtree City residents' golf cart registration fees shall remain the same at $45 for 3-year registration.
